Confederation Marine Modellers
At Confederation Marine Modellers we regularly are asked if we are interested in receiving a donation of a model boat. This may come from a builder who no longer has room for his boats or from the family of a builder who has passed away. We appreciate the predicament people may find themselves in when a beautiful nautical creation needs a new home and we have been successful in coming up with a solution which seems to please all.
Over the past few years we have received many boats into our care and we have sold them by sale, auction or raffle and we have then donated 100% of the proceeds to the Hamilton East Kiwanis Boys and Girls Club, the charity we support in many ways.
So, if you need a home for a boat and you would also like to help out the Boys and Girls Club please contact us at the address below and we'll be in touch. You'll be happy you did.
Our history dates back to 1963 where some members got together to form a club and promote model boating.
The club's name came from a park in Hamilton where we first started to run the models. This park was used for many years.
We are a warm and friendly group of enthusiasts. Our aim is to promote the aspects of model boating in the Great Lakes area and to encourage more people to take up the hobby, especially the younger generation.
Our members' models cover a wide range of styles from sail to warship, tug to pleasure craft.
We attend and support many local functions with displays of our models and hold fun days throughout the summer months, to which we hope to attract other boat clubs. We also plan to visit other boat clubs shows through out the year
to the Confederation Marine Modellers club for modellers located in the Hamilton, Burlington, and Niagara regions of Ontario, Canada.
We meet on the second Tuesday of each month, September to June, at the
Hamilton Museum of Steam and Technology, 900 Woodward Ave, Hamilton.
Meetings start at 7;30 and visitors are welcome to join us.
Whether you want to buy or build your boat, help and advice is readily available. All members receive a full membership list in March each year, together with a list of members most able to provide technical assistance in the various aspects of building and sailing model boats.
We have a collection of model boat plans. Members are able to borrow any of those plans for their own use.
Membership fees for Confederation Marine modellers are $45 per year.
